Pozvánka na přednášku: Autonomous vehicles - the human factors challengeOren Musicant
Ariel University, Israel
Autonomous vehicles are being deployed worldwide; while highly automated vehicles are used with limited exposure to the public, semi-autonomous vehicles, with increasingly autonomous features, have become widely available. In this lecture, I will focus on three main questions:
1) If or when will highly automated vehicles be widely used?
2) will autonomous vehicles mitigate at least some of the human factor challenges causing road accidents, or will they raise new challenges?
3) What can we do to mitigate at least some new human factor challenges?
To discuss these questions, I will review interesting cases from once-believed promising technologies (as currently autonomous vehicles are) that have yet to be accepted by the public. Next, I will review experts' predictions about the diffusion of autonomous vehicles. Next, I will discuss studies that question the safety benefits of using autonomous vehicles. Finally, I will review some recent developments for the potential mitigation of the human factor challenge when driving autonomous vehicles.
Dr. Oren Musicant is an assistant professor in the Industrial Engineering & Management department at Ariel University. Dr. Musicant received his Ph.D. from Ben-Gurion University, Israel. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the School of Mathematical Sciences of Tel Aviv University, Israel. Dr. Oren Musicant’s expertise is in traffic safety and in-vehicle monitoring, feedback, and autonomous systems. He is best known for evaluating the safety benefits of in-vehicle safety feedback systems using naturalistic driving studies. Dr. Musicant’s recent research focuses on applying physiological indices to estimate the mental workload of (remote) vehicle operators. Dr. Musicant received grants and participated in international research projects to promote safe driving through driver assistance technologies. Dr. Musicant has co-authored dozens of academic papers and several patents. In parallel to his academic work, Dr. Musicant works with leading companies in the transportation space to develop real-time driving pattern detection procedures and driving scoring mechanisms.
Research interests: Human factors, In-vehicle systems, Naturalistic driving studies, Teleoperation, Autonomous Vehicles.
